Internet Browser Security

Check your browser and download the latest version.

Recent cyberattacks against government, financial and commercial institutions have led to enhanced cyber security requirements across the Internet.

These requirements mean you may not be able to log into certain sites that handle sensitive information, like psychiatry.org, if your internet browser is not up to date.

What is a browser?

Your browser is a software application that lets you visit web pages on the Internet. Popular browsers include Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer.

Currently, Google Chrome is the most widely used browser in the world.

How do I determine what browser version I am using?
